Db                     Gb    Ab                 Db
  My parents must have thought they had a crazy kid
                          Gb  Ab                      Db
'Cause I was one of those kids who always knew what I wanted
Ab             Gb
  They took me down to the airport to see all the planes departing
Watching them fly something inside of me was starting
Gb                                           Ab
  I was eight when I told them that I'd be a pilot
But I was too young and too short
And there were no female captains
And my dad said, "be patient" he said, "just see what happens"
But I took my first lesson came down from the sky
            Ab N.C.
And told my father I'd fly for the rest of my life
And I got my first job flying for a mortician
In a tiny bonanza, just a corpse and me
Five dollars an hour for flying dead bodies
         Db                             Ab
I had to climb over their faces just to get to my seat

    Gb                       Db
And suddenly the wheels lift off
The ground is falling backwards
I am suddenly alive

Bbm                 Ab
Suddenly I'm in the cockpit
  Suddenly everything's changed
Bbm                  Ab
Suddenly I'm not too young or too short
        Gb                   Ab N.C.
And the passengers in the back don't complain
Bbm                 Ab
Suddenly I'm flying company charters
  Suddenly everything's high
Bbm                      Ab         N.C.       Db   Gb  Ab
Suddenly there's nothing in between me and the sky

Db         Gb     Ab                  Db
  American Airlines had the prettiest planes
So I applied as a flight engineer
But the World War II pilots, they all complained
They said, "girls shouldn't be in the cockpit"
"Hey lady, hey baby, hey! Why don't you grab us a drink?"
And the flight attendants weren't my friends back then
                        Db                     Ab  N.C.
And they said, "Are you better than us, do you think?"

But I kept getting hired
And the World War II crew, they retired
        Gb                               Ab  N.C.
And the girls all thought much higher of me
                         Gb               Ab
1986 the first female American captain in history

Bbm                 Ab
Suddenly I'm in the cockpit
  Suddenly I've got my wings
Bbm                   Ab
Suddenly all of those pilots protested me
        Gb                  Ab N.C.
Well they can get their own drinks!
Bbm                     Ab
Suddenly there's no one saying "stay grounded"
  Looking down, passing them by
Bbm                      Ab         N.C.       Db   Gb  Ab
Suddenly there's nothing in between me and the sky

Suddenly I've got an all female crew
                         Gb                   Ab
The news talked, it made headlines across the world
Suddenly it stopped
No one saying, "You can't" or "You won't"
        Gb                       Ab
Or "You know you're not anything 'cause you're a girl"

Gb                   Ab
Suddenly I'm getting married
                  Gb                          Ab
And we're putting pins on the map where we've flown
Gb              Ab
Suddenly I am a mother
             Gb                          Ab
And suddenly shocked at how much they've grown
Gb                            Ab
Suddenly I'm wondering how my parents would feel
          Gb                 Ab
Seeing me teaching men to be pilots
       Gb              Ab                    Bbm
'Cause suddenly I am a senior instructor and somehow I'm 51
Gb                  Ab
Suddenly I'm flying Paris to Dallas
           Gb                   Ab
Across The Atlantic and feeling calm
     Gb                  Ab
When suddenly someone on air to air traffic says
    Gb                  Ab
"At 8:46 there's been a terrorist action"
        Gb                          Ab                N.C.        Bbm
And the one thing I loved more than anything was used as the bomb
Gb                Ab
Suddenly I'm in a hotel
Gb                     Ab
Suddenly something has died
Gb                         Ab                        Db
Suddenly there's something in between me and the sky

Awesome tab! Came to this website with a sliver of hope that someone would have a tab since it's a new show, and you did not disappoint! Thank you!

This is exactly the reason I started tabbing, because I wanted to learn songs from shows that have only just come out and they weren't already being provided. Glad I could help!
